Hi friends! Today I am bringing you a fun tutorial on how to make collage paper from junk mail!
We all have junk mail so why not take advantage of the free paper? What I used were similar to postcards so they were thicker but you can use any of those ads or even magazine pages! You can use this paper in your art journal, for due cuts, to make cards and tags and in junk journals and scrapbooks too!
Start out by gessoing your papers, once dry use a palette knife to spread three complimentary colors
Ahh look at that texture!
Now break out your stencils and add some more color!
I then used stamps and doodled on the paper
Here they are finished! Super simple!
Here you can see I punched out some hearts and used it in my art journal! I also made some fun gift tags!
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial! Happy painting and recycling!
